Exempt all state pensions and benefits from income tax

We believe that pensions and benefits are very low and therefore should NOT be taxable. We think this is pushing people even deeper into poverty.

We believe that in effect this taxation is punishing pensioners and those on some benefits for things that are largely no fault of their own and that this is an utter disgrace in a democracy, in one of the world's richest countries. It is our view that it is unconscionable and that the Government must act.
